What Chevrolet motorists are saying about our garages

What is a car alternator?

A car alternator keeps your car's battery charged, which is obviously important because a charged battery starts your car and powers everything electrical within it. It does so using a drive belt (sometimes referred to as a serpentine belt) to convert the mechanical energy of the car's rotating crankshaft into electricity through a process of induction.

What are the possible signs of a faulty alternator?

  • Your car is difficult or slow to start.
  • Growling, whirring, whining or squealing noises are emanating from your car's engine.
  • Your car’s interior and exterior lights seem too dim, blink erratically, gradually fade, suddenly get brighter or don’t come on at all.
  • The red light on your car’s dash with the image of a battery (or the words ALT or GEN) becomes illuminated.
  • Your speedometer has stopped working.
  • You can smell rubber burning.
  • Your car fails a multimeter test at a garage.

What is the cause of a faulty car alternator?

  • The component, a brush, which maintains constant electrical contact with the spinning alternator, becomes worn.
  • The voltage regulator, which makes sure that the electrical charge is passed to the battery at the correct voltage, fails.

How long does a car alternator last?

  • On average, a car alternator can last for 8-12 years without needing for any repairs.

How much does it cost to repair a faulty alternator?

  • On average, it costs between £150-£300 to repair or replace a broken car alternator depending on the vehicle.
  • Refurbished car alternators are available but do not offer that much of a cost saving.

About Chevrolet

It’s safe to say a lot has changed since November 1911 in Detroit, when road racer Louis Chevrolet and General Motors founder Billy Durant created Chevrolet. In the century since then, the brand has come to embody the best of American automobile ingenuity, in good times and bad.

One of the biggest brands in the world, Chevrolet cars are sold in most every country today, and have been around since the very early days of Ford’s Model-T (which the company began selling in 1929). Based in the home of automobiles, Detroit, Michigan, the company has had their ups and downs, but are most famous for their brand of American muscle cars. Right now drivers are also loving their five year, 100,000 mile warranty offers.

Experts have said that the best car in their range is the Orlando, a seven-seat MPV that offers outstanding value for money, but gives a sadly lack-lustre driving experience. With the launch of the Volt in the UK, Chevy now has a vehicle that can make a difference in its line up, even if it’s only a niche car at the moment.
